“I’m passionate about helping people and guiding folks to become stronger, more athletic versions of themselves.”
Danny Salvatore has been training for more than ten years and specializes in Olympic weightlifting, Strongman training, and strength training that focuses on joint-specific/isolation work.
“The feeling of hitting a personal record is truly one every person partaking in a healthy journey should not only experience but chase! I love news of the scale decreasing, or to hear that a client has had a great week of food choices. These progressions are things that keep me excited about helping our clientele, and knowing that we are moving in the right direction to help people!”
Danny’s athletic background includes swimming and playing lacrosse at Clarence High School, followed by swimming all through college at SUNY Cortland. “In my senior year of college, I was an NCAA Division III ‘B’ qualifier and school record holder in the 100M Breaststroke, and was ranked 39th in the nation for DIII,” he says. “I was also a member of two school and conference record medley relays (the 200M and 400M medleys).” After college, Danny fed his competitive nature by finding CrossFit and Olympic weightlifting. He has competed in dozens of local competitions, and over the years has qualified for and competed in the CrossFit Northeast Regionals, American Open Weightlifting Finals, Olympic Weightlifting Nationals, and at his peak, was ranked among the top 20 Olympic weightlifters in the country.
Coaching brings Danny the joy of seeing each member’s quality of life improve. “I love when we see people truly open up and start having FUN exercising,” he says. “It is a privilege to be in the gym working, yet sometimes it is viewed as a chore. When I start seeing folks making friends, competing each workout, or trying to become their best self, that is when I truly feel at home helping and coaching.”
